World's largest RIB.

Heaven Heaven 80 boat for sale in Ibiza Spain - Ref: 69151 - YachtWorld.com Mobile


I browse yachtworld ads a lot. I like sailing, fishing and waterskiing. In that order.

So I'm obviously drawn to vessels that allow me to do those things and confused by vessels, the purpose of which isn't immediatetly clear to me. This is one of the latter.

I just don't see the purpose in taking a design that works well as a dinghy and a rescue boat, making it 80 feet long, giving it 2800+ hp and pricing it outside the reach of all but the wealthiest people.

??? I'm not sure there is much discussion to be had on this subject. Just found it and wanted you all to know it was out there, for sale, if you wanted an 80' RIB.

Funny, the cure for deficient genitalia used to be a red sportscar. I guess big, expensive, high-pressure Hypalon tubes backed by inordinate, noisy thrust make slightly more sense.

But I wouldn't want to advertise it.
